Healing Grief With Expressive Art and Writing

Have you just suffered a recent loss? Or, are you still struggling to come to terms with an old loss? If so, in this course, I offer you a modular way to heal grief through art, writing in ways that you might not have considered before. Dedicating yourself to creative grief healing tasks each day will accelerate your resolution of grief.

This course is suitable for all kinds of losses, such as to death, estrangements and relationship break-ups.

Healing the Complexity of Grief

"Not all emotions experienced by a person who is grieving are directly related to loss. However, unless we dissect these emotions, we cannot separate the emotions related to our love of the deceased from our fears, so we tend to hold on to all of our grief."

~ Amy Cavanaugh

The Complexity of Grief

Understanding the needs and fears you are experiencing within your grief process will help you to break down the heaviness and complexity of grief.  

Breaking Down Grief

1) Sadness associated with the loss of a loved one, which is to be expected. 

2) Fears with respect to the future, which can be processed. 

3) Old wounds triggered by the loss, which needs to be separated from the loss.

Relationship with a Lost Loved One

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience."

~ Teilhard de Chardin

The ultimate aim of grieving is to be blessed and enriched by your relationship to your lost loved one and to define a meaningful connection with the one you have lost. 

A Modular Approach to Healing Grief

Grief affects your entire being, body, mind and soul. Grief also opens up old wounds and traumas. Working through the chakra system provides a methodical approach to processing grief. By working through the emotions housed in each chakra (emotional energy center), you can progress through the different issues of grief in a comprehensive way. 

Grief is not a singular emotion. This course offers a way to break down the powerful emotions of grief. To make the grieving process more manageable you can systematically deal with the different issues of grief so as to feel a sense of progression and accomplishment.

Healing the Body, Mind, Heart and Soul

Having explored the many nuances, complexities and agonies of grief in my own life, as well as with many others in my therapy space, I can share with utmost certainty that every grief process is unique. 

Yet, with each loss you experience, you can find poetic and creative ways to surrender to the transformational changes that the grief process inevitably brings.

The powerful process of healing grief will change you forever. To be fully effective, healing grief must involve spiritual realms and energy psychology. The pain of loss and grief is too vast to address exclusively on the human level.

In this course, I clearly share how to heal grief on all levels using the principles of energy psychology, as inspired and informed by end of life practitioner Amy Cavanaugh. 

Energy Psychology

Recognition of the chakra system and grief’s impact upon your body's energy centers can raise your emotional awareness when you are grieving. This course you will learn how to break down the powerful emotions of grief into understandable, manageable parts.

Course Delivery:


This course is a seven-week program, delivered all at once so that you can choose the grief healing tasks that you most need now.

If you are in the midst of a grief process, I encourage you to do one art or writing directive a day in the chakra that requires the most healing first.

Or, you can work your way up from the first to the seventh - one chakra per week.

A PDF of all art and self-care practices is available at the end of the course. Each week you will receive ten art and writing suggestions to heal your grief in level-appropriate ways.
